I’ve posted this image earlier, here. This is a more refined version, cleaned up in Photoshop. Now, I know that there’s a vocal tribe in the blogoshpere that acts as if they were heading the Reichskulturkammer and Photoshop were the modern equivalent of “Entartete Kunst”. I am less passionate about this: While I don’t cut and paste (but see no problem with those who do except if it is supposed to be news photography), I feel no need to restrict myself when it comes to changing color or contrast. I am interested in the structure of things, hence I often do enhance contrast quite a bit. And since I am not very interested in distinguishing between “commercial” images like (sort of) this one, and those that make it in my books and projects, many of my images get the same treatment technically.
